2014 are at en end, and it is time to take a look at what this past year have brought – in terms of sewing.
A year ago I made a (quite long) list of all the projects I would like to make during 2014. I must say I did pretty well considered the amount of costumes I dream’t about doing.
Lets take a look…
1770s Jacket and Skirt
1900s Bust improver and corset cover
A 1780s petticoat and Robe Anglaise
a 1810s regency gown
a 1880s Bustle
A 1850s cage Crinoline & petticoat
and a 1850s evening bodice
1880s Steamunk outfit
1780s Robe Anglaise
This year I managed to make:
4 support garments (bustle, bumpad ect)
8 (and still counting) accessories
Not on the list:
I’ve also styled a few wigs and re-made several pair of pants, skirts, and two wedding dresses.
This year I also made some things I never tried before (but definitely will continue make) – baby clothes.
I also finally started a facebook page for this blog, where I will post lots sewing, costumes and progress pics.

Some of the inspirations above will be transferred to next years “Wishlist”, and some will be filed in the “not as exited about anymore” file.
Well, what can I say, a year is a long time when it comes to planing and keeping an interest, and a short time when it comes to actually getting things done.
I’m however very proud of what I accomplished this year.
